My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner. She is an excellent cook/chef and marveled that our meal was "the best in ages." We shared the Lamb Chops and the sauce with them was so so mouthwatering. The Clam Chowder was just excellent. We are ready to go back NOW!

Nantucket is a pricey island, and so is Oran Mor, but the food here is a cut above on an island where the culinary scene is second-to-none, which it has to be with a high-end clientele. Oran Mor is cozy, elegant and one of the most romantic eateries on the island. Want to make points with your significant other? This... More

This was one of the best meals we had dining out all week. It was a bit quiet for us and service was disjointed. The food however was fantastic! We would definitely recommend it and go back.

Awesome meal, good service, lovely ambiance. Hidden away and easy to miss but worth seeking out. Quiet and romantic setting.

While there are no real "views" from this restaurant, the front room/bar area of this second floor restaurant is beyond charming. We had a delicious meal including the heirloom tomato salad/the grilled shrimp appetizer and potato and shitake mushroom ravioli - all appetizer portions. Delicious! We had reservations but when we arrived the bar was empty and we chose to... More

We looked forward to our visit to OranMor and were greatly disappointed. The waiter made several mistakes (including forgetting 2 of the orders), had a bad attitude and the service was terrible. We felt we were not treated well because we weren't ordering expensive wines. One of us was drinking mixed drinks, I was drinking water. Apparently that didn't impress... More

We flew up here for dinner one night. Great meal. My wife tired lots of things that I had no idea what they were. They explained everything and it was paired very well with wine upon us asking. This was a great place and the staff was extremely friendly. they also put us at a very nice corner table.

Had duck breast and cod. Both delicious. Bread pudding was inventive. Wished there had been other salad options. Setting was lovely. We lucked out with a quiet room.
